The amount of sleep people get rejuvenate them for the day, and getting the right amount is crucial for overall good health! According to the National Sleep Foundation, there are a certain number of hours needed for sleep depending on age group— for adults, ages 18 to 64, they need anywhere between seven to nine hours of sleep to function properly throughout the day. So, make sure your using those smart watches, and clocks and whatever else not just to wake you up but have them set reminders for when you should head to bed!
What does that have to do with dream technology? Nothing, except that most people dream when they sleep. Dreams have always been a phenomenon.
Did you know, you dream even when you don’t? That’s right! If you wake up and don’t remember your dream, it doesn’t mean you didn’t dream. The human mind is constantly awake. Don’t believe me? That’s okay, I found this article to explain it for you; click here to read more.
Wouldn’t it be cool to see what goes on in your mind while you sleep? I think so. A new technology called the “Sleep Cap” might be able to make some dreams watchable.
“The sleep cap will record imagery "using technologies derived from either magnetic resonance or near-infrared spectroscopy. All the data will be processed and streamed as a dream movie to your computer, DVR or Facebook, so all your friends can view and share your dream."”
In an article posted by CNN, Antonio Zadra, a psychology professor at the Université de Montréal says that “dreams are designed to be forgotten.” If that’s so, then why are scientists even bothering to create the “Sleep Cap” to begin with?
Dreams are a valuable part of life and deserve to be remembered. Of course, this goes back to personal belief, but if you think back to a dream that really meant something to you, just because it wasn’t reality doesn’t mean it wasn’t significant in some way. Do you agree?
There are several reasons why people have dreams, just none that anyone (expert or not) can agree on. That’s partly why so fascinating! Go to this link to read more on what scientists are trying to accomplish for the sake of watching dreams!
